ONE YEAR LATER

Acts 11:19-30 Hebrews 13:8

INTRODUCTION

Note: Verse 26

In this passage of Scripture we see that Paul had returned to Antiock with Barnabas , and for a whole year they labored there evangelizing, teaching, and preaching the Word.

I want you to note that in this early church the only change is souls being saved. A great harvest of souls being reaped.

I will admit some things do changed over the course of a year:

With Regard To Some Of Our Personal Life’s I Have Noticed.

1) Our Families Get Larger.

2) We Sometimes Get Larger.

3) Gray Hair Is Beginning To Emerge.

4) Some Of Us Need And Extra Pare of Eyes.

5) Grown Spiritually.

With Regard To Our Church.

1) We’ve Had Some Saved.

2) We’ve Had Some Join Us.

3) We’ve Had Some Leave Us.

4) We’ve Had Some Pass Through.

5) We’ve Had Some Good Times.

6) We’ve Had Some Bad Times.

Nevertheless, we made it through the year.

We don’t know what this next year may hold, however with all the things that have changed and that will change in the coming year, there are some things in doing the work of God that have not changed and must not change.

If Jesus is our example and their is no change in Him. How much more should the church, (the People of God the Christian) not change in Scriptural things.

I WANT YOU TO SEE THAT...
